Spare Tire Bike Rack Solution for Wheel with 8 Lug Bolt Pattern


Hi. I watched Mike’s video and looked at his sketch of the hole pattern for the Thule spare me mounting plate. I have a ram 3500 Roadtrek camper van and the spare tire has a bolt circle diameter of 6.5 inches. There are eight bolts in the circle. Do you have a mounting plate that will fit that size so I can use my spare me rack on the spare tire of my vehicle. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

For a rear spare with a larger bolt pattern like yours the best spare mounted bike rack solution would be a Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier # HRSR1 which is instead designed to fit around tires that are up to 15 inches width and does not use the bolt pattern at all.
